Understanding the BoP from an Access to Opportunities

The focus of the Base of the Pyramid (BoP) has been centred almost exclusively on the economic limitations of low-income communities. The development of business initiatives in the Base of the Pyramid is fundamentally focused on this premise, and function to elaborate on diverse strategies to affront income limitation.


In a recent report, titled “Understanding the BoP from an Access to Opportunities”, Fernando Casado Cañeque, Pablo Sánchez and Jordi Vives expand this focus and recognize the multidimensional concepts of poverty, including an analysis of the BoP through their access to a joining of five basic necessities: water, energy, education, housing, and information and communication technology.
